I downloaded the 2.4GB file from here and reduced it. In addition, I cropped the black from the sides and increased the aspect ratio while boosting the brightness and contrast.

To say Gene Raymond's acting in this film is understated is an understatement. Francis Lederer is convincingly sleazy. The woman is overwhelmingly luscious!

I found the movie entertaining, but the script was unbelievable in the way the characters seemingly let fate decide their fortune. If one were to steal $1M, I would think that person would be just a little nervous and apt to keep an eye on the money. Not this guy; he "telegraphs" his booty to his adversary, then leaves it virtually unprotected. Then, when he loses it, he searches as though he is looking for his overcoat.

The adversary steals the money, yet continues to hang around the scene using his own name!

The girl faces a dubious murder rap but doesn't plead self defense (or accidental death), as she should. Consequently, she opens the door to blackmail. Meanwhile, she has a mouth and lips that scream "Suck on me!", but nobody does. The only man who tries meets his maker for his efforts.

The film froze up at ~55'-50", and I had to get out and view a different posted version to see the conclusion. Otherwise, it's a good, clear copy with decent sound.

Many thanks to to person who uploaded this very good movie. This is a very suspenseful movie with a good moral lesson. Fans of 1950's prop aircraft will enjoy some good Douglas aircraft footage, too.

Good sharp video. Highly Recommended!

An embezzler, a blackmailer and his victim come together on a flight to Hawaii. One man steals a million bucks from his company and hightails it to Shanghai, but along the way he runs into a beautiful woman who is getting blackmailed by someone else on the plane and she begs the thief to pretend to know her. Meanwhile once at the layover stop in Hawaii the blackmailer rummages through the thief’s hotel room and finds the loot then decides to ditch the blackmail scheme in favor of an instant million bucks. To bad for the blackmailer the thief wants his million bucks back.. I recommend this to anyone and yes, I did swipe part ofmy comment from...I forget who so if it was you speak up!
Good film and MUCH better that you would think by its title.
